7:04pm
the unanticipated service was a healthy commuter market with passengers commuting to their jobs in san francisco. blue and gold acquired most of the crawllies red and white fleet which included the alcatraz service and ang gel island and sauce leet toe [spelling?] and in addition, to the peer 41 the marine terminal at pier 41 was part of the acas i say and in 2,007 the blue and gold receive the iso31 in service and the safety management service was certified by the america bureau of service and this is was a huge complicate for the company. one that everyone contributed to. and it brings us to 2012 under the contract blue and gold

7:08pm
and the value lay hoe service right to remain silent the deck hands -- the in a high standard due to the complexities and speed of the vessels these deck hands are certified as high speed qualified senior deck hands and on other services the -- extensive training and crew management, cpr and first-aid as with the m m p, we have worked collaboratively with the iv um, when there are issues of mutual concern to us. best management practices are important to us, we emphasize trecking the environment, the through quality equipment, maintenance and training we operate our vessels and facility in his way that best protects the environment and employee and is rereduce the hazard doubts ways through recognized best
7:09pm
management practices, blue and gold peer frean marine terminal and pier 49 were the first facilities certified clean and green by the city and county department of the environment. pier 41 is located in the heart of fisherman's whaf and is determine in about for the blue and gold vessels and ferries from tub bureau ron and sauce leet toe and angel likelihood dock at pier 41 and americanners can arrive from one distinguish nation and seemlessly transfer to a ferry for another and at peer 41 vessels can dock simultaneously and ensures that vessels depend and arrive on time shively and efficiently and this is important as a lot of passengers rely on the vessels for work. and there is an under
7:10pm
ground 10,000-gallon fuel contagious critical in an emergency as we are able to store fuel there for ten days of continuous prayings in 2012, peer 41 is expected to generate $8.2 million in sails and $65 million in rent to the port. blue and gold excursion and rocket boat services operate from pier 39 and there are four births at pier 39 which can be used for some of the smaller vessels $622,000 will be paid to the worth port from revenue generate from this facility: we just signed a fooive year least with the port for pier 19. these are critical for our operations. there is a welding
7:11pm

7:14pm
merry christmas and happy new year. the term sheets for these projects are expected to be -- by the port commission by 2013 and then off to the board of supervisors for term sheet consideration and possible endorsement and then each of the project would be subject to their own set of transaction document and is so these are
7:15pm
proposals only just for the public's benefit. lot 337 and pier 48 in the port's exclusive negotiating agreement with sea wall lot sociabilities affiliated with the san francisco giant, this slide shows is that the area that we are conceiving of the certainty lot a in mission bay was previously a from the period between 1905 and fine 26 it started to be used for what he will use and that is one of the things that drove the filming along the san francisco water front. this is the film today and you will see it in yellow and it really stands out as one of the areas that needs attention in mission bay. as the as you heard so eloquently
7:16pm
from david port staff isel contempt plating the develop of this park and the earn part of eastern part of city was cut off from bay access and so this is one of the a pennities that we strive to provide and so this development is contemporary plating 3.5 million square feet of mixed use development and unto a thousand unit of residential and up to one .7 million square feet of commercial office space with ground floor retail and approximately 2800 to 3,000 parking spaces with over 8pm acres of parking space and the proposed plan to to be flexible
7:17pm
and this is a phase development that will happen as early as 20 scene, 207 in the initial phase and it's hard to tell now what the right mix of office vs. residential is so the zone something proposed to be flexible to respond to different market conditions. this china basin park proposals is one of the reasons why the giants the sea well lot 337 llc., proposal is receiving such positive tension it's because of the attention they have given to the design of this water front open space. it would be 5-acres the costs are high. we are looking at entirely newue tillity infrastructure new streets, sidewalks sidewalks and park locate and is improvements to pier 48 currently estimates at over $2 million in current
7:18pm
$2,012 and this infrastructure is really needed to unlock the value of this site for the port and for development. very significant this would be an entirely new city neighborhood with significant economic development for the city as a whole and 5,000 construction jobs and over 7,000 permanent jobs on the site and 10,000 jobs regionally with up to 2,000 new residents so erail mentioned the fiscal analysis that we would do through fiscal feasiblable report to the board of supervisors prior to environmental review and the draft fiscal feasiblability for this probability indicates a 9 million-dollar tax benefit to the city after the cost of the city services and this is after netting out the property tax
7:19pm
increment that we would capture through the i f b and so this is really coming from gross receipts tax and sales tax and other tacks that would continue to flow to the general fund. and elane mentioned the idea of excess tax increments and after the project needs are paid there is up to one $.6 billion paid in excess taxes generated from this site. pier 70 is a bit more complicated in that it's divided into a number of districts and a master plan starting in 2,007 and the commission chose to let out pourings of this site in sort-of a segmented manner and the water personal property site is the site under contract for a city development or in development is managing the rehabilitation of the historic buildings along 20th street, we
7:20pm
have our ship repair under least and you have heard david talk about cran copark. four city's this the process of doing due diligence for the property right now and they are concerned that it's sea level rise and the city's team will be consulting with the chief hash engine here about raising the grade of this site so it's not subject to innonedation in the future. very interesting engineering constraints at pier 70 there were slip ways built by the federal government to facility ship repairs and it's difficult to buildbled on those and that is blue line that you see here and that is demarks the only shore line and everything bay ward from that line requires pile support and there is a risk
7:21pm
of lateral spread and major earthquake and to there is a need to reinforce the shore line so it doesn't slough off in the bay and an earthquake. and these are the water lines that are out of the known water lines that are out of the site and for city proposes to install entirely new water infrastructure at the site and the same goes for waist water form water facilities and all of it needs to be relace and had they are looking at one $56 million of at the moment infrastructure cost and is potentially an additional $90 million for historic rehabilitation costs at the site and so finally, the warriors project in piers 30 and 32 and
7:22pm
a lot of it -- in the public eye and the site is currently-15 -acre and the pier is near it is end of life and we have some road restriction on the site and limiting use and if we were just to contemporary plate we moving this, it would cost $45 million. and the warriors have hired a team of a commons who have gone to produce conceptual design for this site and they are looking at multipurpose venues for basket ball games, public concerts, convention use, with 60% of the site dedicate to open space and a combination of retail uses and practice courts and parking covering the rest of the site and this is the concept
7:23pm
of what it would look like and this is being published in the paper and so the major a major terms is that the ports would finances these improvements and they would look up to 120 million here with a 13% of capital and the city would repay that private investment and publicly owned pier through rim credit and the price of c o l lot 33 and that is an increment from an i f d and those would be the soles and again, almost a billion dollar on it's own and generates more than 2500 construction jobs and 1700 jobs with great fiscal board of trustees to the city of posh 19.4 million in total tax receipts.
7:24pm
so that conclude the presentation as we are scheduled go back to the committee to seek a vote on this policy later in december, the plan if the commission has no other changes that we should contemporary plate and incorporate in the policy would be to then bring the policy to the board of supervisors for a vote by the board and we think at the staff level it's very important for the capital planning committee and the board of supervisors to establish this before the individual projects propose the i f d and so that concludes our presentation any questions we are available to answer them. >> is there any public comment on this item? seeing none ... thank you for all of the work that has gone into this and for explaining what one of the very difficult
7:25pm
